  • Publication number: 20200135198
    Abstract: An embodiment relates to an apparatus, wherein the apparatus is configured to use a first sensor to identify a user of the apparatus, to obtain a temporarily identified user, wherein the apparatus is configured to use a second sensor, different from the first sensor, to spatially track the identified user, in order to update a position assigned to the identified user, to obtain an identified and localized user, and wherein the apparatus is configured to link a user interaction to the identified and localized user by determining whether the user interaction was performed by the identified and localized user.

  • Publication number: 20190362614
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, a system includes an audio signal analyzer configured to receive one or more audio microphone signals, and configured to determine a first pattern matching result by determining whether the one or more microphone signals include at least one audio pattern of one or more predefined audio patterns. Moreover, the system includes an air pressure signal analyzer configured to receive an air pressure change signal indicating an air pressure change, or configured to receive an air pressure signal indicating a current air pressure. The air pressure signal analyzer is configured to determine a second pattern matching result by determining whether the air pressure signal or the air pressure change signal includes at least one pressure sensor pattern. Furthermore, the system comprises an evaluator configured to indicate, depending on the first pattern matching result and depending second pattern matching result that a predefined event occurred.

  • Publication number: 20180050059
    Abstract: RNA encoding an immunogen is co-delivered to non-immune cells at the site of delivery and also to immune cells which infiltrate the site of delivery. The responses of these two cell types to the same delivered RNA lead to two different effects, which interact to produce a strong immune response against the immunogen. The non-immune cells translate the RNA and express the immunogen. Infiltrating immune cells respond to the RNA by expressing type I interferons and pro-inflammatory cytokines which produce a local adjuvant effect which acts on the immunogen-expressing non-immune cells to upregulate major histocompatibility complex expression, thereby increasing presentation of the translated protein to T cells. The effects on the immune and non-immune cells can be achieved by a single delivery of a single RNA e.g. by a single injection.

  • Publication number: 20150257520
    Abstract: A head for an oral care implement has a mounting surface and at least one tuft mounted thereon. The tuft has a longitudinal axis and a cross-sectional area extending in a plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis. The tuft comprises a plurality of substantially cylindrical filaments. Each filament has a longitudinal axis and a cross-sectional area extending in a plane that is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis. The cross-sectional area of an individual filament has a substantially non-circular shape. The plurality of filaments is arranged such that the cross-sectional area of the tuft has a scaled-up shape of the individual filament's cross-sectional area.
